Tri-color Nail Fun

   Today I wanted to try some more nail art.  This time I did the masking tape trick.  It's simple and pretty.  All you need  is:

  • masking tape
  • nail polish
Step One:
     Start with a couple coats of any color.  

Step Two:
     Take a strip of tape and place it diagonally across your nail.

Step Three:
     Take two different color polishes and paint the portion above the tape one color and below the tap another. Let dry.

Step Four:
     Remove the tape and tah dah! You have a pretty tri-colored nail.  

     There is so much you can do with masking tape to create designs on your nails.  The possibilities are endless. I like this one because I am able to do it fast while my little one is napping.  
     I also tried it with craft scissors that cut designs.  I just cut the tape strips with the craft scissors, taped, and painted.  Here's how they turned out:

Top it off with a clear coat and you're all done :)  Let me know what you come up with!
